All going well then

I might not work in a lab at the moment, but you can never quite get rid of the microbiologist in me.

Not only did I do this test from a specimen that I took from my own good self…

I also predicted the result. Correctly, nogal.

Look, I’m anything but surprised.

Given the information that I am getting from the school after last week’s trip, this is a clear case of Tour Pox. I could use the old English term: “There’s a bit of it going around”, because there is, but that won’t help anyone who has got it.

We’re going away for a long weekend, starting this afternoon, and I’m gutted that I’m not going to able to do all the stuff that I was planning on doing, but while nothing will get rid of this any time soon, a change of scenery, some fresh air and a lot relaxation – and staying away from other people! – is surely the best way to pass the time while I’ve got it.

And it’s nowhere near as bad as that episode a couple of years ago. Thank heavens.
